“After passing through Ridorta they had come across a wagon going their way…” The start of Víctor Català’s best known work is an invitation to immerse oneself in the fascinating literary richness of SOLITUD, and foreshadows some of its major themes: landscape as a vocabulary to express existence, animality in the face of cultural and technical evolution, or time as human geography.
With her great mountain novel, Caterina Albert gave a voice to one of the most exciting female characters in Catalan literature. A journey of enormous vibrant intensity, marked by the magnetic discovery of desire, the raw lesson of solitude and the lucid understanding of the pains that weigh upon the world.
Length: 2 hours. The play is performed in Catalan and presented with English subtitles. Learn more.
